June 20th is the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson

Worlds Largest Swim Lesson Boulder City, Nevada

Boulder City will be participating in this international event on Thursday, June 20th (2019) for the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson. Boulder City youths and adults will join tens of thousands of swimmers at aquatic facilities around the world for the ninth year to raise the awareness that swimming lessons can help save lives.

Since the event was created, more than 278,000 children and adults have participated in some 27 countries. Last year in 2018 there were 41,814 swimmers participating world-wide. This is all to focus on the importance of teaching children to swim. Tragically, in the US drowning is the leading cause of unintended, injury related cause of death to children aged 1-4, and is the second leading cause of death for children under the age of 14.

“While we can say Olympic hopeful Zane Grothe has done laps in our pool, I believe we can also say our swimming programs have saved countless youth from becoming a tragic statistic,” said Roger Hall, Director of Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department. “When the pool staff came to me with the idea of getting involved in this, I recognized a great opportunity for us to help show parents and the community just how important it is to learn to swim.”

So, this sounds like a great excuse to go have fun at our local Boulder City Pool (located at 861 Avenue B). More info is below:
